7:00 am
san francisco police are considering a new policy that would dramatically change the way officers make life-or-death decisions.
7:01 am
we pay tolls on bridges, but how would i feel about a toll to get into san mateo county from san francisco? it's a plan being considered. we'll have reaction this morning. "mornings on 2" starts now. good morning to you. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> good morning. i'm tori campbell. it's wednesday, november 17th. developing news. big problems for b.a.r.t. a train stalled in the transbay tube has just been moved but there's still serious delays. let's go right to sal for the latest. >> the problem is a train became disabled underground, probably a claustrophobic nightmare for those worried about this. now, the train has been moved out of the tube and the people on the train have been taken off the train and put on another. how far, as a b.a.r.t. dispatcher just told me, the damage is done. there will be major delays into
7:02 am
san francisco, 20, 30 minutes. we're fearing it will be more than that because delays tend to snowball when things like this happen. we have kraig debro coming up. right now, the commute is not starting off well getting into san francisco. we have another traffic update in a few minutes. let's go back to the desk. one minute after 7:00. the other big story we're following. uc police are bracing for what is expected to be demonstrations. police are already at mission bay, at the campus. jade hernandez is there with more. >> reporter: good morning. i want to show you very quickly that authorities, san francisco police are already preparing for this protest about to start in about a half an hour.
7:03 am
i mentioned police off the top because they are expecting large demonstrations this morning. the regents usually hold the last meeting of the year at ucla. but last year authorities dealt with near riots after a 32% tuition hike was approved. a uc spokesperson said moving the meeting had nothing to do with the demonstrations in southern california last year but more to do with cutting costs since it was cheaper to get everybody to meet in san francisco. student activists disagree. they say this is a strategy to hold a meeting on a garage hit- own -- a graduate-only campus. the ucspokesperson insisted there was no ulterior motive. >> we're here because it's a cost-effective place to hold the board meeting but what we expect is the people will be respectful and most importantly be respectful to police
7:04 am
officers would are trying to maintain control and that's really critical. >> reporter: the uc board of regents is expected to vote on an 8% fee fike that would affect students whose families make over $120,000. the regents will look at cutting retiree income in half for many employees. they point to the state and federal funding for the reasons to forgo the hike. i want to take you live here. a protest is expected to start here in about a half hour. there are some demonstrators that are already arriving here. the regents meeting will schedule to meet at 8:30. jade hearse, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. police in han antioch are out there searching for a suspect outside a 7-11 store. police responded to a shooting outside a store on buchanan road. officers found 21-year-old gregory leavey inside of a car and he was shot.
7:05 am
he was pronounced several minutes later -- pronounced dead several minutes later. the investigation into the shooting continues this morning. also, there was another fatal shooting at the same 7-11 back in april of last year. in that case, the 46-year-old victim was pulling out of the parking lot on his motorcycle when a man ran up to him and fired several shots. police arrested a suspect shortly after that shooting. they say the victim and the shooter had an ongoing dispute. well, we have new information this morning about a napa man who was shot and killed over the weekend while he was out hunting with some friends and his 11-year-old son. police have refused to say who fired the shot that killed 60- year-old william downs. but according to "the press democrat" newspaper sources close to the family say it was the 11-year-old son who accidentally fired the shot that killed his father.
7:06 am
sonoma county sheriff's officials say that downs stepped out of a truck right at the moment another hunter in the party was aiming at a bird and fired. 7:05. this morning, a crime scene investigator will return to the witness stand in the richmond gang rape case. yesterday, investigator grazetti showed the photograph she took of the victim after she was attacked. she was overcome with emotion. the mother of one defendant spoke outside of court yesterday. >> translator: we know what kind of person my son is. we trust in god and the courts he will be cleared of charges. >> today's the third day of a preliminary hearing to determine if there's enough evidence to put the seven suspects on trial. they are accused of gang raping the teenager outside a homecoming dance last year. it's a plan certain to anger a lot of joggers.
7:07 am
commutersen the peninsula -- commuters on the pill may be -- on the peninsula and this is not near a bridge. claudine wong has more. >> reporter: that's right. no crossing a bridge. you are just basically crossing a highway. under this plan you could be paying big bucks. we've been out here talking about the folks -- talking to folks about the plan. they say they aren't doing it. it is something being considered by the transportation department authority. if you drive through san francisco during the commute hour you would pay $3 each way. why do it? it would bring in a lot of money $60 to 80 million. if you consider a regular commuterser someone who drives back and forth every day, they
7:08 am
would pay about $1500 a year. it's really not surprising that people we talked to this morning do not like the idea. >> i pay the toll poll from the north bay coming in. i'm not gonna pay tolls within the inner city, no way. >> reporter: we're still years off from this possibly become a reality. we're talking a lot of stuff that would have to go through before it happened. the transportation authority is going to study the idea. 2013 is the projected date being thrown around for this pilot program that would last between six and nine months before they decide to make it permanent. authority and voters all have to take a look at this. if you gauge the reaction -- it's pretty hard to find someone would thinks this is a good idea. one person says if it happens here, why not every other city in the bay area?
7:09 am
claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, claudine. we want to check back in with sal. obviously a lot going on right now with the delays on b.a.r.t. how is -- how is the rest of the commute. >> if you are trying to get into san francisco, it might be easier or harder depending upon where you are. this is a look at 80 westbound, really slow traffic on 80 coming down the -- from pinole, richmond, heading all the way down to oakland in that area. what pam i doing? there we go. traffic is going to be busy heading from pinole to richmond because of earlier crashes. bay bridge live -- bay bridge toll plaza, it's lighter at the top because a lot of people are stuck up the stream, if you will. if you are coming to san francisco, not that bad at the top and the commute if from 280
